Here at Etsy, the community mourns the loss of Michael Jackson by paying tribute rooted in creativity. Throughout his career, MJ was a figure of innovation: a global phenomenon who broke down boundaries not just in music, but race and culture as well. With the best selling record of all time, a repertoire of music videos that redefined the medium, and an edgy style that sparked trends around the world, Michael serves as a constant reminder that the greatest threat to art is compliance.
To do Jackson’s legacy justice, we channel his inspiration in order to create something fresh and original. Let’s all take a moment out of our day to moonwalk across our studios, and collectively express, “R.I.P. MJ!”
